Home made boost controller

Post by Broken850 » Sun Jun 01, 2014 7:44 pm

Any folks have experience building/installing/tuning home made boost controllers? The style I'm interested in building is the 1/4 tee style with a spring loaded ball. Planning in installing on a stock 850 turbo wagon. Thanks!

Do you have boost gauge and wideband installed?

Not as of now. I'm assuming you recommend them before increasing boost?
